HELENA -

The long holiday weekend got off to a bad start for one Montana couple when a crash on Interstate 15 blocked both northbound lanes Friday morning between Custer and Lincoln Road in the Helena Valley.

According to the Montana Highway Patrol, a double-axle camper came unhitched from the SUV that was pulling it.

The vehicle then went into a side spin and the trailer overturned, landing across the Interstate.

While the trailer was severely damaged, the two people in the SUV were not injured.

With Memorial Day here, MHP is reminding the public to be safe on Montana's roadways.

MHP Trooper Branden Uhl said, "People need to plan ahead, take their time, make sure they have their seat belts on. That they're not drinking and driving. If they are tired, pull over and rest, and most importantly don't be distracted by your cellphone or other electronic device."


(Initial Report) And another reminder, when you see emergency lights and vehicles on the road, you are required to yield the right of way. Vehicles passing the scene of Friday's crash had to be warned several times to slow down.A crash on the Northbound lanes of Interstate 15 is holding up traffic in the Helena Valley between the Custer Avenue and Lincoln Road exits, near mile marker 195.
